New project to improve production techniques and technology in Vaal

The Johannesburg-based company Vaal has invested in improving the quality of its products by choosing Sacmi as its supplier for a top-grade installation of 3 new pressure casting machines.

This new installation ensures the highest degree of precise, constant and repetitive casting; the hallmarks of Sacmi’s modern casting technology.

 

The installation includes an AVM casting cell dedicated to producing WCs with stick-on rim, an AVE cell for WCs with open rim and, finally, an ALS cell performs the casting of water tanks and lids.

 

In addition to the casting plant, Vaal has also purchased a new robotized glazing cell supplied by the Sacmi Group company, Gaiotto.

This state-of-the-art machinery guarantees constant and optimum glaze application which means the finished product is more hygienic since the glaze is applied in a uniform manner throughout all areas of the piece.

 

The production process is completed by the use of a Riedhammer tunnel kiln and shuttle kiln which are a guarantee of maximum distribution of heat and airflow to obtain a glaze with the shiniest finish perfectly and evenly spread over the piece surface. 

 

Vaal has recently become part of the Grohe Group and, with these new high technology projects, the company is certainly updating its production and quality standards to match those of the prestigious Grohe brand.
